10 reviews of Seacroft Golf Club
Seacroft is an old fashioned links course through typical duneland, straight out to the 9th and straight back. There are a few blind shots and I agree with an earlier reviewer that the 8th hole needs a marker post. Also the marker at the 15th is misleading as there is masses of fairway to the left of it but none at all to the right (the marker is in the right rough). Played in a 20mph breeze the course was challenging but fair. The greens were true and quick and the bunkering perfect. The clubhouse is very comfortable. Recommended to lovers of links golf.
Day two of our tour of Lincolnshire brought us here. Rather strange car parking arrangements, the official car park is across the the road and behind some houses, most members seem to park in the roads. Very nice clubhouse and surrounds with good views of the starting hole.
Several notices both in the clubhouse and on several tee boxes, informing you what you must do if you ball leaves the boundary of the course and crosses the road that runs parallel with 8 of the first 9 holes, I can only assume there must have been instances of cars being hit by errant tee shots off these tees. I found this rather off putting, and pulled several drives left, that said, I was the only one seemingly affected, the other three werent bothered. The back nine was well away from the road and my game improved and I enjoyed the course more. Stay well away from the bunkers some are real pot bunkers typical of links courses and you know the trouble they can cause to a good round.
Being a links course its important to establish the best route to the greens, on most holes this was fairly obvious, but the eighth lacked any marker pole and we all ended up in totally the wrong places, a pity it is a nice hole if played correctly. The fairways were badly burnt up due to the lack of rain and the wind that can obviously blow here, we were lucky, blue skys, gentle breeze. However the greens were excellent, plenty of borrows and quite severe slopes to putt down if your approach shots ended up on the wrong side of the pin.
i have been a distant member of this course for the past two years after my son and daughter became members.My handicap is 3 but i was not familar with links courses.After playing for the past two years on this course it has really grown on me.The greens are perfect all year round and the course can be a real challenge especially when windy.The members are very welcoming to us.The junior organisers are very good and helpful organising the competitions.The pro shop has a good selection of equipment aswell.The club is very modern and serve great meals.
Fabulous links with a traditional feel. Played in a 40mph wind, which made for a tough challenge, but that didn't deter our enjoyment. 9 holes out and then 9 back, all of them unique in their own way. A fair challenge to any level of golfer. Modern clubhouse with friendly staff, who served great tasting food. I'm certainly looking forward to a return visit fairly soon.
Slightly dissapointed with Seacroft - mainly up and down holes, with no major challenges - certainly no significant rough or gorse - The greens weren't typical links either and were relatively slow compared to the rest of the course
Played in late April. Greens were magnificent. Very good golf course with some very tough holes against the wind. They seem so easy with the wind at your back! You will need a course planner to judge distances. Brand new clubhouse being built.
Enjoyed the pot bunkers. Still finding sand in my clothes and hair a week later! Quality course.
We played this course in May 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was in very good condition and a typical links layout of nine holes out with the wind and nine holes back against it! It has some interesting and challenging holes, blind drives and approaches - good fun and very enjoyable.
It doesnt look much from the 1st tee but this is a super links course. Hard undulating fairways and quick greens makes it really tough to get it close when they tuck the pins behind dunes and deep bunkers. There is nearly always a bail out option when going for the greens which makes this course playable no matter what your standard. Every hole offers its own unique challenge and if you add to this a good breeze a great links test is on offer here. Its up there with the likes of Burnham and Berrow in my opinion and is well worth the visit.
When I played the course was in fantastic condition. All the elements of links golfing are evident at Seacroft, blind drives over ridges, undulating fairways and fast greens - oh and lots of bunkers (over seventy I believe). On a clear day there are views of the wash, North Sea and Lincolnshire from parts of the course. A Golf Planner is available from the pro shop. This is very detailed and is a must for those playing the course for the first time. The par threes are great holes as is the par 5 thirteenth hole.
Brilliant links course. One of the best courses in the county, and right next to skegness, perfect for a night out! (that last part isn't quite true)
